A Valentines Verve Project Parade

My honey doesnt really eat alot of sweets. Or drink any coffee. But he does drink tea nearly everyday. So when this month's Verve Project Parade theme was Tags, Tins & Treats, I decided to make my own tea holder.

I took measurements for the teabag to make a base. Then stamped two panels for the walls of the holder. I used Spellbinder's label 9 to make the opening. Labels 9 seemed mimic an actual tea box opening perfectly.

I tried to make it not too girly. But really it only meant going with a blue theme rather than pink. He'll probably take off the bow before it goes to work with him, but I likes it.

The Dets:
Stamps: Verve Bountiful Backgrounds, Sweet Valentine
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, summer sky, spica glitter pens
Paper: PTI spring rain & tuxedo black, MM wedding pack
Accessories: white ribbon, spellbinders label 9 & circle, dauber


  1. Beautiful! Ok, I know it is for a guy, but it is still beautiful. The papers and colors are great. Is this a PTI template?

  2. Absolutely beautiful!!! I would LOVE to receive this as a gift! I don't think your man can fully appreciate the hard work that went into this the way another stamper would {hint hint}, LOL! ;-)

  3. Love this! What a great gift - my hubby drinks A LOT of tea, too.

  4. GORGEOUS!! Oh my what a wonderful idea! And the opening and topper are so elegant!! LOVE this fabulous project!

  5. Great idea! Love the elegant top and the non-traditional colors!

  6. What a clever idea. How did you get the nestie so exact? Too bad about the bows probable demise since it's really pretty ;)

  7. That's awesome... I like the opening very cool!
